Mr. Worldwide will soon be able to add producer to his resume as he and Endemol Shine Studios bring a Miami-set drama to FOX!
The drama will be called 305, named after Miami’s area code, and the script will be written by Sacha Penn, who has also written Survior’s Remorse, and directed by Jonathon Levine, who’s work includes directing Warm Bodies. And of course, Mr. 305 will be a executive producer along with Penn, Levine and David Ortiz.
Armando is continuing his deal with FOX and his own production company, Honey I’m Home to produce 305 and continue to host his own New Year’s Eve show, Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution.
In 305, when Willy is pulled from his rundown high school and sent to live with his uncle, a celebrity chef, and attend the wealthiest private school in Miami, he attempts to acclimate himself to his new surroundings while dealing with relationships, family drama, work, and all the problems that more money bring.
There is no word on when the show will begin filming, but most likely, it’ll be within the next year.
Mr. 305 is taking over the 702 with his seven-date Sin City residency that launches September 23rd.
Pit’s Time of Our Lives limited-time engagement will take place at Planet Hollywood Resort’s theater, The Axis, from September 23rd through October 7th with tickets ranging from $36 to $169 (without fees).
This morning, September 10th, Pitbull talked with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, On Air with Ryan and revealed that he is planning on making his stay in Vegas permanent.
“When everything went down in the Revolutionary War in Cuba, basically the mob and everybody went to Vegas. So for me, it’s not only an honor like I said before, but it’s also deeply-rooted. So we’re going to take it from a temporary residency to a permanent residency!” said Armando on his Vegas shows.

In the interview he also mentioned his guest appearance on FOX’s hit TV-show, Empire. Pit will be playing himself and he will perform the song, “No Doubt About It” with Jussie Smollett who plays Jamal Lyon, the new head Empire Records.
“I come on, I do a performance and then me and Lucious have a conversation about some business,” he describes his guest role on Empire. “And me and Cookie have a conversation about what we got going on down here in Miami. It was a lot of fun.”
At the beginning of the interview he also said that he was about to go into a meeting for his World Tour next year!
